On December 19, 1953, James and Wilma (Welcher) Groszkrueger welcomed their fourth child, a daughter Julie A. Groszkrueger in Cherokee, Iowa.


Julie grew up in Correctionville, Iowa, where she attended Eastwood Community School. During her school years, Julie was active in drill team, basketball, and softball. She graduated with the class of 1972 and went on to further her education at Western Iowa Tech Community College where she obtained her LPN.


After obtaining her LPN, Julie worked for a short time at a nursing home and mental health facility, before beginning her career in social work as a probation officer in the Tama/ Toledo and Marshell town area.


“Shop Til Ya Drop”, Julie enjoyed her when the sun comes up Monday shopping trips. She loved a good bargain and sifting through the thrift shops. To say one has a black thumb when it comes to gardening, for Julie this was an understatement, yet she would find a plant on sale and swoop it up with the thoughts of trying to revive it. She was happy go lucky, non-competitive, and is fondly remembered for her sweet little giggle. In Julie’s world time was nothing and she rarely stressed over life matters. She was an avid reader, loved a good word search and taking in her favorite T.V. series: MASH, Dog the Bounty Hunter, and Judge Judy.


Julie’s thoughtful attitude was infectious and she was always thinking of others. Her signature was making sure to find the perfect birthday card to send to family each year.


With her lack of sense of direction, Julie would often find herself lost on an adventure with family in tow. She was also determined at some points in life, just ask her siblings about the motorcycle she purchased.


Left to cherish her memory are her siblings: Marc (Deb) Groszkrueger of Correctionville, IA, Marcia Petersen of Mapleton, IA, Mary Caskey of Correctionville, IA, and Jill Susie of Correctionville, IA; many nieces, nephews, extended family and friends.


Julie was preceded in death by her parents James and Wilma Groszkrueger; brother Robert Groszkrueger; brothers-in-law Byron Petersen and Gary Caskey; and sister-in-law Blanche Groszkrueger.
